About the Apple Trample
Our region celebrates its proud heritage during the Mountain State Apple Harvest Festival. The Bob Baronner Apple Trample 5k, a running and walking event along the Apple Harvest Festival Parade Route, is not only a 5k race but also a training program designed to get people of all abilities fit and trained for this event and beyond. The Apple Trample 5k provides a way to have fun and exercise at the same time. It creates awareness about healthy eating, active lifestyles, and cancer prevention.
The Apple Trample is a great 5K event for first-time walkers and competitive runners who want to set a new personal record. The Apple Trample is a USATF certified course that follows a gently rolling terrain and finishes on the track at Cobourn Field with spectators in the stands.
This year’s Apple Trample 5k will feature runners immediately followed by walkers with the finish line on the track of Martinsburg High School Cobourn Field.
Special features for this year’s Apple Trample include Apple Trample T-shirt, Bag Check-in Service and Shuttle Service.
Thanks to our Corporate Sponsors and all of last years participants, we were able to donate $26,000 to University Healthcare Foundation’s Cancer Comfort Fund.
The cancer comfort fund helps provide emergency assistance to cancer patients locally who do not qualify for other area programs. Some of the immediate needs covered by the fund include food supplements, medication, and gas cards for transportation to and from medical appointments.
For more information on ways to support the cancer comfort fund, call the University Healthcare Foundation office at 304-264-1223.
